The tractors left Omagh Showgrounds at 2pm and travelled through the local area via Beragh, Sixmilecross, Seskinore, Fintona and returning to Omagh to top it all off with a barbecue.

Along the route there was a large amount of people who turned out to watch the tractors as they passed the various locations and to donate to a very worthy cause.

The evening was finished off by the prizes being awarded for categories as below. Thank you to all who donated prizes.

Best fleet was won by Todd’s with Zetors
